Gadget Time featured
two items, one rather unusual and the other very practical. The first
was Vince Garcia’s milk can fermentor.
Vince has modified a stainless steel milk can to accept an airlock and
seal it’s lid securely. At presstime, Vince had yet to try his creation
but will report on it’s performance as soon as he does.

For the New Stuff
portion of the meeting , Jason Petros talked
about several new kits at the store, one being a saison and the other
being a 10th Anniversary stout kit. B3 also plans to introduce a line
of "Club Series" kits. These would be a signature kit representing
a particular club (like ours!) and a portion of each sale would go back
to that club. Sounds like a great idea. This writer thinks there are several
DOZE brewers who could provide worthy recipes.
B3 will also soon
be stocking a new plate type wort chiller. Similar to The Therminator,
it will retail for less than $100.
